The Toolkit Model combines elements of web programming and model-based techniques, to make building UIs easier and faster. Based on an EMF model of widgets, it is a natural extension of e4's modeled workbench UI.
The talk will present the basic concepts and architecture and show how the tools are used for created and scripting UIs.
Hallvard Traetteberg, has a PhD on model-based UI design from the Norwegian Univ. of Science and Technology, where he now is Associate Professor. He has developed Eclipse-based research prototypes for many years, and contributes the Toolkit Model to the e4 project, based on this experience.
